Ate here once with my elderly parents - semi decent pub food served quickly. Not a bad pub really, we sat in the dining area with a few other people - reasonable wine choice and reasonable food. I ate the Spanish pork on cous cous and enjoyed it.

I have been here a few times recently for lunch. we pre ordered our meals and were served soon after we arrived. The meals are a good size, reasonably priced and tasty. There is not a huge choice but anyone should be able to find something they like. They also have a daily $8.00 special.

Well, I've noticed that trip adviser doesn't seem to be anywhere near as flexible as some of the other sites, especially since pubs seem to fall into either a hotel or a restaurant (though sometimes they are separate listings). Many of the hotels, like this one, I've only been to as a pub, and as a pub this place is... More

We only had a meal here and the food was excellent and reasonably priced and served with excellent South Australia wines. Service was great. This is a old hotel but has a lot of character and would be good to visit when a show is on next-door at the theatre.

This place is only basic accommodation and don't be fooled by the pics. First and last time i stay here. Needs a decent refurb and new beds. Onoy stay here if you are desperate and there is nothing else.

The staff are very great, accommodating and helpful. Do not go there in during Adelaide Fringe Festival though if you are looking for peace and quiet. There was a dance party going on downstairs till 5am one night and ear plugs don't help.

I was staying in the Hilton Hotel and this pub is close by, I like to have a few local beers when I'm on business and this pub is perfect. It is friendly, good atmosphere and reasonably priced (half price beer on a Wednesday) It also has a good choice of Ale.

Not for the faint-hearted, you need to accept this is a budget hotel, in every sense of the word. The hotel itself is a gorgeous old building, nice front and back bars, seems to cater more to the young grunge crowd of Adelaide. I liked the pub, but it has not been maintained and is quite shabby. Be prepared for... More

Whilst staying in Adelaide, we wandered into the Hotel Metropolitan on a Sunday night and had a delicious meal. Quick service and the staff were so friendly. The meals were a good size, well cooked and nicely presented. The Madras curry was quite 'warm' and very well flavoured whilst the pan fried fish on rocket and pear salad was light... More

Lunch again for an early Christmas get together. This place never fails to impress. The staff are always so friendly and the food is put together with thoughts to energize the customer. Our SAA will always value this great venue. Well Done.
